Early or late menopause:
Is it in the genes?

Dr Anna Murray completed her PhD on coeliac disease and T cell lymphoma of the gut, in Southampton in 1994.
She went on to a postdoctoral position at Wessex Regional Genetics in Salisbury, where she worked primarily on understanding the genetic basis of the Fragile X syndrome.
Dr Murray led the studies that first showed a link between the Fragile X mutation and premature ovarian insufficiency.
Her interest in ovarian ageing broadened following her move to Exeter in 2005 and she started to investigate common genetic variants associated with reproductive ageing.
This work has led to a number of high profile publications on traits including menarche timing, hormone measures, and age at natural menopause.
Join us to hear more from Dr Murray.
